Returning for Thanksgiving

local boy | Nov 22, 200511:53 AM

Hi all,

Just wanted to post a message so we'd all have something to read.

I am returning to New Orleans for the second time since Katrina (the first time was in early Oct.) to spend Thanksgiving with my family. As our kitchen (and whole bottom floor) is out of commission (don't worry, we're fixing it all), we will be eating at Ralph's on the Park on Thursday afternoon. I will let you all know how it is. I'm sure also that, because we don't have a kitchen, we will find ourselves at many restaurants during the holiday. Expect a full report.

One question: When I was home, the Columns Hotel was not open yet. I think at least the bar would do bang-up business if it could open for the Thanskgiving holiday. All of my friends are just itching to go have a little reunion there. Does anyone know whether the Columns is opening again soon?
